This belonged to my mother and has a treadle to which a motor was added.  It works perfectly but nothing has been sewn on it lately.  The little drawers are filled with bobbins and a presser foot, extra needles and a seam ripper.  Some old buttons and clasps in boxes.  I remember at Christmas my mother would have a sign on her door Elves at Work and she’d be in her room sewing up aprons or skirts for us.  I use it in the living room to hold a lamp.    Be sure to check out The RealSharon’s Blog who listed the Keep or Pitch blog today as recipient of three awards!  Coming in number seven out of ten (but I don’t think they are in any particular order,) she lists blogs she reads faithfully and is recognizing each blog and awarding them with Sweet Stylish and Versatile Blogger awards.  Thanks Sharon.

  1. No, they were definitely not listed in any particular order. I am honored to pass the awards on to your blog! 🙂
    I can imagine this sewing machine having a attachment to it for you in remembering your mother. To me, if something has a strong attachment, then I say, make room for it. IF you’re willing to let go of it, then maybe get it appraised? I’m sure someone out there would pay a lot for a vintage sewing machine if you can bear to part with it.

  2. It has a lot of meaning AND is functioning as a piece of furniture. I vote KEEP.

  3. My mom is an avid sewer (and a self-admitted pack rat) – she would love this. It does look quite cool…
